Čunovo (sometimes incorrectly called Čuňovo, Croatian: Čunovo, Hungarian: Dunacsún, Duna-Csún, German: Sandorf) is a small part of Bratislava, Slovakia, in the southern area near the Hungarian border. It is located close to the Gabčíkovo - Nagymaros Dams.
Čunovo was first mentioned as a village in 1232 under the name Chun. In the 16th century, Croats fleeing from the Ottomans in the south settled in the village. Until 1947, Čunovo, along with Jarovce and Rusovce, was part of Hungary and was transferred that year with the two others to Czechoslovakia, to enable construction of the Port of Bratislava. It became an official part of Bratislava on January 1, 1972. Some of the inhabitants still use the Croatian language and preserve folk traditions.
In 2000, a new art museum called Danubiana was opened. Dunajské luhy Protected Landscape Area comprises some parts of the borough. It is home to Water Sports Centre Čunovo an artificial whitewater facility built in 1996 which attracts paddlers from around the world.
Since 21 December 2007, all border controls have been lifted as Hungary and Slovakia became part of the Schengen Area.
